Welcome to Safety Central

Cheshire's interactive lifeskills centre


Helping you and those you care for stay safe, keep healthy and be happy. That’s our objective at Safety Central, Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service’s interactive lifeskills education centre at Lymm near Warrington.

Our stunning £4.5m indoor village - with its four themed zones - provides a truly immersive learning environment, where people of all ages can develop the skills and knowledge they need to stay safe and well at home, on the road in and in our community. We share an impressive circular building with Lymm Fire Station, so visitors also get the chance to see firefighters in action, undertaking their specialist training.

We’re delighted to offer a range of free learning programmes, about which you can find more information on our LEARN pages. You can also book your session via our VISIT page.
